We use Bob Jones curriculum in almost all of our Elementary classrooms.
Because knowing the Bible is essential to having a biblical worldview, Bible study tools, maps, timelines, and charts are presented to help elementary-age students develop a Bible-reading habit and learn to study the Bible on their own. The Bible lessons span from Creation to the new heaven and new earth.
In History our textbooks use a chronological narrative approach to acquaint elementary-level students with historical people, places, and events. Activities—discussion questions, timelines, maps, and online searches—that build on the previous grade are also employed to aid your students comprehension and retention of the materials.
In elementary English, phonics, reading, writing, and spelling are consistent and connected—woven together to provide students with a solid language-arts foundation. Students cover one part of speech at a time with systematic review and ample practice, helping them develop writing skills and guiding them through the writing process as they write reports, stories, descriptions, poems, letters, and essays.
Because phonics forms the groundwork for reading, our Reading program builds on the phonics foundation. Students study letter-sound associations and syllable patterns with an emphasis on word families. To ensure comprehension and to develop higher-order thinking skills, reading selections incorporate questions on four levels—literal, interpretive, critical, and appreciative.
Elementary Math ensures success by systematically reviewing previously learned concepts as well as building new skills. Manipulatives are often used in Grades 1–4 by both teacher and student.
Our elementary Science encourages hands-on, interactive learning. Enriching lessons incorporate demonstrations, activities, and group discussions and introduce science-process skills through hands-on activities and projects. Each science textbook points to the wisdom of God and His designing hand.
